Lovely morning this morning. My 6 yr old said he was going to call the cops so they will put me in jail then he will kill me. All because I wouldn't say I am sorry to him. Why? Because I wouldn't carry his backpack to the car. Start of emotional breakdown...because he could zip his winter coat all the way up. I refused to say I am sorry. I explained to him that I was tired of him treating me with no respect and that I was tired of his smart mouth. That of coarse was not wise on my part. I just had it this morning. He listens to other adults but me. He calls me his maid. His 'routines' involve me getting him something to drink, eat and turning on the TV for him. Also if it is dark he insists I go with him to the bathroom to turn the light on for him. He also insist I wait for him to be done. He forgets to flush, he forgets to turn off the light and he pees everywhere. I am getting so frustrated that at times I take it out on him. Any advice on how to change his 'routine' so he starts doing for himself. Better yet start treating me as to if he loves me. Thank you.
